Mickey Newbury - "Over The Mountain" lyrics

Over the mountain I will build us a cabin
Over the mountain I will build us a home
We will sit by the fire won't the juniper smell good
Over the mountain

Take me my lady and give me some babies
Share all my burdens and sew on my clothes
Life is a fountain we will drink it bone dry
Over the mountain

April will promise you blossoms my lady
Creek waters risin' and the mares gonna foal
Gather the creatures and bring them on down
On down the mountain

I will plant us a garden here next to the forest
Dig us a well there with water so pure
Water so pure and as sweet as the sunshine
Over the mountain

I will build us a cabin here in the tall wood
Bottom land cedar and Snake River stone

We will sit by the fire won't the juniper smell good
Over the mountain
